    I'm assuming form the pics that the only sweatshirt ribbing you left in place was around the neck, correct? How did you bind down the front and did you add buttons/zipper? I'd love to see a picture of the finished jacket. Also, did you add a fold-back cuff on end of the sleves or just binding? And I'm assuming the binding around the bottom was just straight binding, correct?

    The only thing you forgot to add was, buy sweatshirt 1 size larger than normal, wash sweatshirt before cutting up. My camera batteries are dead, or else I'd send you a picture of mine.

    I'm glad you are finding this helpful. I will post more pics of finishing this jacket as I do it. I do have pics of a couple of others I made and I'll add them.

    This is the very first jacket I made

    I have found that if I don't cut up the front before I put the fabric on, it holds the shape better. I cut off the bottom ribbing, sleeve ribbing, and then cut up the side and sleeve. I leave the neck ribbing on until I've finished. I cut the neck ribbing off, as well as cutting up the center front after I've finished all the "patchwork", and put binding on neck, front, and bottom. I usually put a cuff/border on the sleeve so I can turn up the sleeves a little bit. A lady came to our quilt guild and did a workshop on these shirts. On some of them, she left the neck ribbing on, and put the bottom ribbing back on and didn't cut them up the front -- and her husband wears some of them. The ones she showed us were just gorgeous. I'll see if I can find some pictures and post them later.

    Thanks for the tip. I already cut down the middle of the first one but I will try it your way next time. It sounds like it will hold it's shape better and be easier to piece.

    That totally makes sense to hold off on cutting the center. I'll try it that way next time. Can't wait to see your pics.
